Tropical Egg

The Tropical Egg is a testament to Theo Fabergé's concern for the world's environment. A vermeil tree is abundant with flowering hand enamelled leaves gilded on to the exterior of the lead crystal Egg, symbolizing the sanctuary of earth's forests. The Egg can be removed to reveal the surprise.

Within the egg, an exotic parrot made of zoisite, with a yellow jasper beak and cabochon ruby eyes is perched in the branches of the tree. The bird symbolizes the majesty of earth's wildlife as well as its vulnerability and serves as a warning to the possible plight of nature at the hands of humans.
